Alright, so I see that there's some good DoDMERB help on this board, so I figure I'll try to ask what my situation is. I had some childhood wheezing, brought on by having a cold, from ages 9 to 13, very randomly. I had an inhaler for it and the wheezing would go away when id use it (very rarely). The LAST occurance was like a month after my 13th birthday, which sucks, because that seems to be the arbitrary cutoff. My current DoDMERB disqualification is wheezing/RAD/asthma after age 13, so its not all that wheezing from ages 9-12 but that one occurance a month after my 13th bday. Now, I have heard of people taking the methacholine test or whatever its called. Is this to rebute the DQ status and get it changed to PPQ, or is it just to obtain a waiver? I have applications opened for the class of 2011 at USAFA, USNA, and USMA. I was actually a class of 2010 candidate for USMA, USCGA, and USMMA. Both USCGA and USMMA granted me waivers for my DQ, but USMA never attempted to because I wasn't ranked high enough in my district. From the article I just read, it seems like USAFA is anal about anything, so that worried me into creating this thread. Are the academies the same in terms of what they will waiver? An admissions officer at USMA told me "i mean... if coast guard granted you a waiver... i don't see why west point wouldn't." thoughts? thanks giggity giggity, giggity goo.
